Flipper The Anti-Romney Dolphin

This is a great video from CPAC, featuring Max Blumenthal from The Nation. This is also the opposite of what I expect out of The Nation, and it's great to see them breaking with their staid past. My favorite part is the "incredibly pale black Republican."

The CPAC conference seems to me to be a group of people flailing about and desperately trying to stay relevant. They've got all their anti-Rudy McRomney stickers but in their heart they seem to know that one of these guys will be the nominee: Romney and Giuliani finished 1-2 in their straw poll. Their movement is dying on the vine thanks to a failed President showing what conservatism really means: an imperial foreign policy, a disrespect and disregard for the functions of government, cronyism and multiple giveaways to big business. They know that the public is against them and their policies, so they're resigned to saying no to everything for two years in Congress, despite the American people's desire to see things get done. The conservative movement succeeded in pulling the wool over everyone's eyes for a while, but it's been exposed now, and these convention-goers don't seem to know what to do about that.
